HB 2594 - DIGEST

Includes an "explicit, well-defined, and dominant public policy" requiring that law enforcement officers be honest when acting in their official capacity, so that criminal prosecutions are not jeopardized and public confidence in law enforcement is not eroded.

Clarifies that an arbitrator shall not overturn the decision of an employer to terminate a law enforcement officer for engaging in an act or acts of dishonesty established by clear, cogent, and convincing evidence.
